Roma and Clint Underhill own a succesful realty company in Desert Palms
After a long day they entered their hot tub with some white wine
It was a 60 degree night
Clint had taken some medication prior to going into the hot tub The Back Story
Part One Concerns
1.) The paramedics discovered empty wine bottles on the ledge surrounding the hot tub, and the bodies of the Underhills on the bottom of the hot tub. The water of the jacuzzi appeared way too hot.
Both of them have been dead for awhile 2.) Whey was the hot tub so hot? What time did the maid get home? For how long were the Underhill's dead for? 3.) Clint Underhill had taken a medication called Lasix straight before he went into the hot tub. The temperature level of the water was extremely high, that can hurt the body, and they were likewise drinking red wine while in the hot tub Physiological effects that added to Underhill's Death
I believe the couple passed away as a result of going in the jacuzzi, and nothing prior.
One factor being because the jacuzzi was above the temperature it ought to be given that it was at 115 degrees compared to the high of 109 degrees. This effect on the body for extended periods of time can cause dehydration which in Clintʼs situation he was expect to avoid considering that he was talking Lasix. Likewise under the comsumption of alcohol can cause issues even more.
It is a possibility that Clint might have been taking lasix since he has hypertension.
People with high or low high blood pressure should not go into a jacuzzi.
Our Forecasts on the Underhill's Death
We believe the cause of Clint Underhills' death was because of the mixture of alcohol, his medication, Lasix, and the overly hot water.
One should never ever take a medication then consume alcohol after, or take a medication with alcohol, so his cause of death might be due to his organs stopping working since of the impacts alcohol and medication can have on the human body.
Lasix also makes the individual taking it dehydrated, so there is a chance that Clint might be dehydrated when he entered into the jacuzzi, and the hot temperature level of the hot tub might have caused him to faint or loose consciousness.
We think that the cause of death of Roma Underhill is probably because of the mix of alcohol and the hotness of the water could have caused her to loose consciousness, or have a heart attack, and cause an injury to the body, or the body could have increased in body temperature quickly causing her death.

Underhill's Review Questions
The BAC was high but not enough for death
Lasix is used to treat high blood pressure however alcohol and heat are not hugely impactful on it either. So what happened to the Underhills?!
1.)I think the couple died as a result of going in the hot tub, and nothing prior. One reason being because the hot tub was above the temperature it should be since it was at 115 degrees compared to the high of 109 degrees. This effect on the body for long periods of time can cause dehydration which in Clintʼs circumstance he was suppose to avoid since he was talking Lasix. Also under the comsumption of alcohol can cause problems further.
2.) When Mr. Underhill is taking Lasix, a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing salt to instead pass in your urine, it causes many precautions and side effects. Lasix is generally taken to treat fluid retention in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder such as nephrotic syndrome. Also it can treat hight blood pressure. One of the main precautions of Lasix is to avoid dehydration, avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position. Final Questions
